Welcome to North Bay Country Dance

As of Thursday, December 2, the weekly CDC Community Level for Sonoma and Marin counties is back up at the medium/yellow level. Dancers must wear an N95-or-comparable mask at all times in the dance space, and food must be eaten outside of the dance hall/building. Musicians and callers may opt to wear a mask or not while on stage. Napa county is still at the low/green level.  For all levels, all participants must be fully vaccinated with at least one booster. See our COVID policy page for more details. Please consider your personal risk tolerance in deciding whether to participate in events. If you have questions, contact Jen Bamesberger (jen@nbcds.org) regarding contra dances and Tom Spittler (tspittler@gmail.com) regarding English Country Dance.  Thanks for your support in keeping the transmission of COVID-19 and other infections to a minimum.

North Bay Country Dance Society (NBCDS) invites you to join us on the dance floor! Whether you choose contra, family, English country, or Morris dancing, you’ll share the aerobic exhilaration of traditional dancing to a spectrum of great live music in good company.

North of San Francisco Bay in Sonoma, Marin, and Napa counties, we are proud to sponsor dances featuring outstanding area callers and musicians as well as some of the finest nationally-renowned talent. You don’t need a partner, just comfortable clothes and low, smooth-soled dancing shoes. And our dances are fragrance-free, in consideration of some community members who are sensitive.

You haven’t danced before? No worries! Our dances are accessible and inclusive with a welcoming community; each dance is taught in advance, and you can show up for an introduction for new dancers half an hour before the dance starts. Easier dances are usually called in the first half of the dance.
